Default Free alternative to M$ office

Please Login to Remove!

Works will all M$ Office docs online. Can create office docs all online, from word to powerpoints and excels. ALSO what this thread is about, view office docs.

NOTE .DOC FILES ONLY. .DOCx files do not currently work.

Sadly the edit uses scripts that no browser will support.

Step one: create account - ThinkFree via PC
Step two: add docs or create docs - up to 1gb of storage
Step three: log onto ThinkFree via BB on Opera Mini 4. 3 might work, havn't tried.
Step four: find your file (if its not there, reload the page and it will be there) , and to the left will be an option field. click that, and go to VIEW. Any edits on the BB wont work. my guess b/c of java for the super edit and probably unsupported jscript from the regular edit.
Step five: it auto loads the next page and views

remember, u can have all office docs via this site, just can only view .doc files :(

have fun.

Nah, I'll use OpenOffice.org

Maybe if it works on blackberry, but considering that it is off-site storage with privacy issues, especially if business-related, I doubt I will ever use it.
